Colbert revealed that Batiste had made the official choice to depart the show due to his absence from the show throughout the summer months. Batiste had not appeared on the show during those months.
Colbert, 58, added, “It’s for all the best reasons.” “Including so that he can carry on showing his artwork to people worldwide.”

Colbert expressed that he and his crew will miss Batiste but that he is looking forward to having him back in the studio in the future in a different capacity. The show’s host, Stephen Colbert, told the performer, “I can’t wait to have you back on as a guest with your next hit song.” “I love you.”

Colbert assured his audience that the band would continue to function normally despite Batiste’s leave because Louis Cato, whom he dubbed a “musical genius,” would take over as bandleader.

In a press statement, CBS stated that Grammy-nominated artist Cato has been filling the role of interim bandleader this summer.
